Lanai – Hawaii's most secluded island – offers couples and families a choice of stunning golden-sand beaches renowned for their scenic beauty and crystal clear waters that boast some of the best snorkelling in the Hawaiin islands.
A former pineapple plantation (Dole’s to be exact), Lanai attracts travellers who appreciate pristine natural wonders, uncrowded beaches, serenity and seclusion.
With a population of just 3200, the island has only 50km of paved roads and just a few places to stay, ranging from the opulent Manele Bay Hotel, a world-class resort located near one of the island’s best beaches, to bed and breakfasts and rental homes.
With no nightlife to speak of, Lanai is best suited for those looking to get away from it all and is perfect for kicking back, relaxing and spending private time together on a secluded beach.
